ON-LOCATION FILM-INDUCED TOURISM: SUCCESS AND SUSTAINABILITY
This Masters dissertation considers the tourism niche of film-induced tourism (FIT) within the broader realm of heritage and cultural tourism (HCT). It sets out to identify the scope of different types of FIT, focusing specifically on “on-location film-induced tourism” (OLFIT). The genesis of FIT in the related niche of literary tourism is explored, thereby explaining the history and development of FIT. Furthermore, this dissertation sets out to identify key elements that are recognised as necessary for the functioning of OLFIT as well as those factors that determine the success and sustainability of OLFIT endeavours. Both the elements and factors necessary for OLFIT’s success and sustainability are elucidated with the use of international case studies, including The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies which are regarded as best-practice. A flow diagram-model has been devised to illustrate the interconnectivity of these elements and factors and can be applied to other situations. This is followed by an examination of the film and tourism industry in South Africa, thereby evaluating the potential of the country as an OLFIT destination.

Global Perspectives on Literary Tourism and Film Induced Tourism
This book assembles contributions from an international body of scholars interested in the multi and interdisciplinary study of literary tourism and film-induced tourism. The book contributes to the literature on these two research fields by being a platform for critical discussion, examining concepts, trends and methods, and documenting the advances in research on the intersections of literature, film and the act of travelling. Encompassing a wide range of topics from literary museums, literary tours, motivations of literary tourists and film-induced tourists, women travellers, film tourism destinations, literary places to digital literary tourism, this book covers literature and film as drivers of sustainable tourism development, cultural identity, preservation of heritage, community relations and development, literary and cultural literacy, and destination marketing.
Subtitle: The relationship between literary tourism and film tourism based on Lord of the Rings. Introduction: Albeit, there has been an increasing interest in New Zealand as a film tourism location, far too little attention has been paid to the travel motivations. The paper compares Hungarian attitude to the international data constructed by Anne Buchmann concerning the relationship of literary tourism and film tourism in the case of Lord of the Rings. The hypothesis of the dissertation is: in case of Lord of the Rings literary tourism has become incorporated into film tourism. Methods: Secondary data by Anne Buchmann includes relevant data of international arrivals to New Zealand. Primary data is collected by online questionnaire based on the attitude of Hungarian people to a journey discovering the real location of Lord of the Rings with four main question groups including the acquaintance of Lord of the Rings, questions about the novel, film and the country of New Zealand. Results: The questionnaire was conducted by 105 respondents. Almost 50% of them got to know the novel after the release of the first film. 46% indicated the experienced scenery as the best part of the movies while only 32% considered the storyline as the most enjoyable part of the directed films. 83% would create a Lord of the Rings theme tour involving the literary and cinematographic work with the main focus on the movie experience. Discussion: The results indicate that in case of Lord of the Rings film tourism is not the only purpose for travelling, the literary work of J. R. R. Tolkien should be taken into account as well. Conclusion: Films based on well-known novels generate a mixed type of tourism including literary tourism as a part of film tourism, in these cases literary tourism becomes incorporated into film tourism.
